Davis-Standard LLC and NO.EL Automazione Industriale, the Italian maker of coreless winders for stretch film, have signed an exclusive agreement to jointly supply in-line coreless stretch film systems, up to 120 inches wide, to the converting industry.
The alliance combines NO.EL's coreless winding technology with Davis-Standard's extrusion and processing expertise. The companies are working on wider systems.
The technology eliminates the need for a cardboard core.
NO.EL's in-line coreless winders allow processors to produce conventional cast stretch film for hand-wrap or machine-wrap at line speeds of up to 2,300 feet per minute. NO.EL's in-line pre-stretching technology, in conjunction with Davis-Standard's cast stretch lines, can run line speeds up to 3,600 feet per minute.
Hassan Helmy, executive vice president of Davis-Standard, said Milan-based NO.EL has reliable technology that is a good fit with his company's Black Clawson stretch film equipment. “There are several coreless suppliers, but NO.EL is the only one with proven in-line and off-line production success,” Helmy said.
